This is the 2012 supplement to Law, Jeffries, and Bradleys casebook The Federal Courts and the Law of Federal-State Relations, 7th.
The case book provides detailed information on federal courts and the law of federal-state relations. Part I explores the intersection of federalism and separation of powers that provide the constitutional foundations of a modern Federal Courts course. Part II covers jurisdiction and Part III deals with Federal Court enforcement of Federal rights. The final chapter is devoted to certain technically complex questions of remedial interaction notably the relation of federal habeas corpus to Section 1983. The Seventh Edition of this established casebook features a new co-author Curtis A. Bradley of Duke and to an extent a new agenda. In line with Professor Bradleys interests the intersections between federal courts and international law have been developed in considerable detail. Additionally the Seventh Edition features a completely restructured habeas chapter designed to present this increasingly complicated body of law in an more approachable manner.
Federal-State Relations Topics include:
- The role of international law in the federal courts
- International tribunals
- International abstention
- Habeas corpus and the war on terror.
